Egg Plant Poutine

I saw this on Guy’s Triple D, so I had to give it a whirl. Well, I saw the fries part, but I did the poutine part on my own. Crispy egg plant fries, cheese curds, and some slow-cooked short ribs with gravy. I hit it with some Poppi’s Chili seasoning at the end for a pop of flavor. I did the fries in the air fryer to cut out some of the fat. I hope you like it.

2 large egg plants, peeled and cut like fries
16 ounces beef short rubs
16 ounces marinara sauce
8 ounces red wine
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
8 ounces cheese curds or fresh mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup flour
1 cup Panko bread crumbs
1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
1 teaspoon Poppi’s chili seasoning
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 onion powder
12 ounces milk

Olive oil for cooking

Mix 1 teaspoon Old Bay, garlic powder, thyme and paprika, and coat short ribs on all sides.

Heat oven-safe skillet to medium; coat short ribs with oil.

Brown short ribs on all sides.

Remove ribs, add wine to deglaze pan, then add ribs back to pan.

Add marinara sauce and cover; place in oven for 2 1/2 to 3 hours at 325.

Remove ribs from pan; cut or pull into bit size pieces.


Cut eggplant into french fry shapes.

Mix panko, garlic powder, Old Bay, Poppi’s chili seasoning, onion powder, and black pepper.

Set up your dredge stations: flour, milk, panko.

Add eggplant fries to milk, flour, then add to milk, then to panko.

Add to air fryer and spray with cooking spray. Do not over fill – do one layer at a time.

Cook for 9 minutes at 380 degrees.

Cook gravy: this is on you; packaged or jar – your choice.

If the fries have been sitting, warm in the oven for 5 minutes
